Daily brief (6/17): Top picks from the Springfield media

Today will be mostly sunny, with a high of 90. The heat index could hit 93, but a strong wind with gusts of up to 29 mph will provide some relief.

Tomorrow will be hotter, with heat indexes of 98 possible, so be careful if you’re going out to the three-day Show-Me Music Festival at Springfield Underground (3610 E. Kearney), which is expected to bring out 25,000 people this weekend.

Today’s picks

  • OzarksFirst [KOLR/KSFX]: Six-week closure of Chestnut at U.S. Highway 65 begins Sunday. A bridge-widening project at Chestnut Expressway will close the exit from U.S. 65 for at least six weeks. (Other coverage: KY3)
